To have 7 different types of cheese in my fridge

My DH says it is unreasonable as 3-4 should be sufficient - I say he is BU - Mumsnet jury return the verdict please

TheRealFellatio Sun 16-Jun-13 13:15:15

You can never have too many types of cheese. Your DH is BU.

Can I come round? I have pickle.

DawnOfTheDee Sun 16-Jun-13 13:15:41

You are not BU. You may be my new best friend grin

As long as none goes to waste who cares? The more the better I say!

YANBU I have nine types in mine.

You can never have too much cheese. He is being ridiculous.

I just need more money to be able to afford more (nice) cheese.... <eyes supermarket value red leicester in fridge with disappointment>

apostropheuse Sun 16-Jun-13 13:16:49

Stealth boast there OP. grin

(Oh and YANBU - the more cheese the better)

Only 7?

You are just not trying.

Eyesunderarock Sun 16-Jun-13 13:18:14

Do you eat them all?
If not, remove his choices from the shopping list and see how he feels. smile
We have loads of different sorts, bought weekly and eaten by different members of the house. Rather like our bread situation.

7?

Am very envy that you can eat cheese, I can't. Although actually, the only taste I had of cheese made me think it was disgusting (and then I ended up in the doctor's so it kind of made the experience worse...)

I have 6 types of chocolate spread.

Jamdoughnutfiend Sun 16-Jun-13 13:20:45

Haha! I knew I wasn't BU - DH has the hump as he was sure he was right - he said to say that he and the girls only eat 3 types - the others are mine (he is still BU isn't he??!!)

He also just said food shouldn't be used for pleasure - should I LTB!!

squeakytoy Sun 16-Jun-13 13:22:00

Never really thought about it before so I looked and I have:

parmesan
mozzarella
cheddar
halloumi
paneer
cheese spread
cottage cheese
feta

Sianilaa Sun 16-Jun-13 13:23:50

I did think YWBU... Til I counted and I have 7 too.

Cheddar (extra mature obv)
Mozzarella
Parmesan
Ricotta
Goat
Halloumi
Philadelphia.

Ooops

We probably have about 6 at the moment. Some frankly a bit crap (DS1 loves Dairylea slices hmm) but some are the real thing - stilton and nice cheddar.

YANBU and I don't much like cheese unless it is melted or soft cheese flavoured with garlic or chilli. I really don't like the texture of cheese except for those.

YABU though, if don't eat them as a family

Sianilaa Sun 16-Jun-13 13:24:29

Oh and Boursin. 8. Seems excessive?!

Jamdoughnutfiend Sun 16-Jun-13 13:25:21

To be clear, I love cheese and eat some form every day (eyes expanding waistline) I have
Mozerella
Halloumi
Cheddar
Gruyere
Baby bel
Parmesan
Philadelphia
Feta

Just realised it is 8 - not telling him that!

ipswichwitch Sun 16-Jun-13 13:27:38

I've only got 3 (not done the shopping yet), so I now have cheese envy envy
Personally I think it's unreasonable to expect you to be able to function on 3 varieties or less. Oh, and food is most definitely for pleasure (as well as keeping you alive and stuff). I suggest you only give your DH stuff he hates and inform him that since he believes food is not for pleasure he can only eat things that give him no joy whatsoever. That'll teach him grin

Eyesunderarock Sun 16-Jun-13 13:31:44

Why is he grumpy?
Are you buying gigantic blocks that hog the fridge? In which case, the answer is to acquire another fridge.

smoked applewood
wensleydale
manchego
pie d'angloyes
something odd and squishy and French (OH)
slipcote with basil
peppered goat's cheese
cheddar
halloumi
paneer
philly
cottage cheese
feta

ahhh. Um. Good thing he's not living with us then. grin

badbride Sun 16-Jun-13 13:31:55

Looking at those lists and thinking, "Good Heavens! No mould-ripened or blue-veined cheeses?"

'Tis the mark of an elegant cheeseboard to have those. What will the neighbours think?" grin

badbride Sun 16-Jun-13 13:32:46

Agh! Wasn't fast enough. Clearly Eyes' cheeseboard is the height of sophistication

herladyship Sun 16-Jun-13 13:33:47

YABU

I'll be round with some crackers to sort this situation out! winkgrin

Leviticus Sun 16-Jun-13 13:34:36

Ooh I've just counted 7 in ours as well.

Three of those are dairylea slices, cheesestrings and laughing cow triangles. Does that still count?

FeegleFion Sun 16-Jun-13 13:35:18

I'll bring some pears and port!

It is never U to have all that lovely cheese!

I'd refuse to share with him for such insolence grin

Eyesunderarock Sun 16-Jun-13 13:36:48

This is an Aspie household (except me}
No blue cheese or mold of any sort possible, due to sensory issues and general ranting.

FeegleFion Sun 16-Jun-13 13:37:06

Oh and I fully support badbride she can bring some scummy blue offerings grin

badbride Sun 16-Jun-13 13:37:29

Absolutely, Leviticus, as long as you remember to pass the port to the left grin
